Stephen (Steve) Greenberg is an historian, photographer, rare book librarian, teacher, and writer originally from New York City, but now based in suburban Maryland. He holds a number of degrees, including a Doctorate in History from Fordham University, and a Master’s Degree in Library Service from Columbia University. He retired two years ago from the US National Library of Medicine (one of the constituent institutes of the National Institutes of Health), and now devotes his time to travel, photography, and writing, with some independent scholarship just to keep a hand in the game. Locally, his photographic work has been displayed at Multiple Exposures Gallery in Old Town Alexandria, the Delaplaine Art Center in Frederick, and various venues at Glen Echo Park, including a solo show in 2023 at Photoworks. He has also self-published several volumes of original photography and verse, which is his continuing interest. Samples of his work can been seen at

“Learning must be an interactive, hands-on process where "teachers" and "students" share equally in the creation of something new, be it a photograph, or a text, or simply a shared understanding. Active participants in learning will always have something to share.”
